My free monthly email, Notes from A Book Addict, will ignite your passion for great literature.

You’ll delve into the lives of extraordinary writers, both past and present, visiting their homelands and houses, and reading their books. You’ll hear about important anniversaries, receive book recommendations, discover the magic of poetry, find out about films and TV programmes based on classic works, and much, much more. All this in just one email on the first day of each month.

Join over 6,000 people who are reading more quality books, discussing inspiring authors, and discovering how they too, are becoming Book Addicts.

Have a good poke around

Anybody could sit down and read the books that I discuss. But have you thought about the story behind the book? Or how the author came to write the book? I’ll help you analyse the themes, consider the various characters and their motivations, and give you links for further explorations … And you’ll be entertained while you learn.

Thanks so much for all this!  You work so hard on our behalf. I loved your talk on A.A. Milne and Winnie-the-Pooh and a completely different take on the book and the man!

Thank you, Susannah – that was delightful. I very much appreciate the video recordings, as I am usually not able to see the live talks. I do love the E.H. Shepard illustrations.


Susannah’s Newsletters are excellent – the best that is available on the Internet as far as I am concerned.


Oh, how I love the wit and coziness of your newsletters. They are stories in themselves which I love to read over and over.


Your newsletters are the only time I read poetry and your selections are consistently enjoyable. Thank you for this beauty.


I’m 76 years old now … and a relatively new “Notes…Addict” reader. Thank you for what you do; you are a JOY, Susannah!


I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I have enjoyed your latest Notes from a Book Addict! So many thanks for your wonderful communication, it really always makes my day! 


Thank you Susannah, I love learning from you.


Thanks for your lecture series on the 4 English trailblazers, I have now caught up with all four of them. Even though I had a fair bit of prior knowledge of all except Florence Nightingale, I enjoyed your lectures very much, there were so many lovely pictures and unexpected sidelights that I was very well entertained. You really brought out how these four brilliant misfits made a difference to English culture!

I would have loved to have taken part in the actual lectures, but 5 pm on a weekday does not work for me, unfortunately, so I was pleased to be able to catch the lectures later. I look forward to further lectures in the future.


I absolutely love receiving your programs!


I just wanted to thank you for your March Trailblazers series.
Such interesting and diverse lives and the discovery of all those quirky facts gave a full picture of the personalities behind the famous personas.

As the ladies say, “It’s not easy”. What an understatement!


Thank you for your delightful Notes From a Book Addict they make my day.


I do hope you’ll join my literary journey so don’t forget to subscribe above.
